Default Tonneau flapping noise

Anyone figured out a way how to stop the noise? Speeds over 60 becomes noticeable. Tonneau folding cover F150 crewcab.

TIA

Most have adjusting screws to tighten it from side to side. Aside from that, that's just the way most are, especially the less expensive ones.

Ive never seen side to side adjustment except for the velcro but after installing 2 they usually have a way to tighten them from front to back.

Put pipe insulation on the cross members, quiets the slapping noise and tightens the tarp.
Worked on mine, had the same issue at speed.

Buy a solid cover that can't flap and create noise.
